Hi I'm Toya Welcome to my HubPages. I hope you enjoy them. I work online blogging, writing HubPages and selling things on and offline.

What kind of Christmas decorations would you use for a winter theme?

Traditional colours for Christmas are reds, golds, silvers and green. But some choose to have a theme which is white with gold and winter snowy effects to create a winter theme rather than a traditional Christmas theme.

However the two go together when you think of the Winter Wonderland theme parks around the world and the other Christmas markets.

Winter Wonderland has a Santas Grotto, bars, restaurants, a fair ground, and other stalls where you can buy Christmas gifts and arts and crafts.

You could get a white or black Christmas tree and decorate it with red, gold and other hanging ornaments, the tinsel could be black or white, and silver or gold.

Christmas decorations are very colourful but if you choose a winter theme you may want to have decorations with less colour for a winter theme.

For example you could use paper snowflakes in white and black, and have a wreath in white or black with bows, ribbons, berries and leaves.

The lights could be in white or dimmed reds and oranges and you could hang cinnamon and orange clove ornaments up to add to the theme.

Where are you putting your decorations?

To create your perfect Christmas decorations you need to think about whether you are decorating your family house, or for example, your daughter or sons room with him or her, or just creating a themed sitting room or dining room.

Definitely if you are decorating your shop for Christmas then the theme should go with the clothes or other items you are selling. You couldn't have a gothic or winter scene if all your clothes are very colourful and traditional. And likewise if your clothes or items you are selling are geared towards a more traditional Christmas then you wouldn't be able to have a Winter scene theme for your shop windows or decorations as these clothes or products would suggest long flowing chiffon or velvet and taffeta designs whereas a more traditional outfit may be in red or gold colours or silver with sequins and blue or pink silks for example. And if you are selling Christmas decorations and other items unless you are selling more than one style off decorations then they don't necessarily go together when thinking of sales over the Christmas and New Year period.
